Hotel Londres
Ranked #5 of 17 Hotels in Estoril
Reviewed June 20, 2011

Arrived in Estoril for a conference and spent 4 nights at the hotel. The hotel is situated on a hill so if you have luggage and came via train, it is quite a hike from the station. Be warned. 10 mins from the beach (downhill) where a couple of restaurants and cafes can be found (tourist prices of course).

Check in was easy enough, but the room I was checked in to (139) had a strong cigerette smoke smell. Requested for change but was advised hotel was full. Room was also facing the road and you could hear cars and passer-bys easily. Not much of a problem if you sleep around 11pm or so.

Room was clean although there was no in room wifi. The toilet was of a good standard, except the shower head didn't work very well. Good airconditioning as well.

No drinking water provided in room.

Breakfast was decent, breads, fruit, ham and cheese (same menu for the 4 days i was there) but could get rather crowded past 830am.

Small pool with ample sunshine and sun loungers.

I would probably try someplace else if ever in Estoril again.

This hotel is located at the top of a steep hill within a 10 minute walk of Estoril Train Station.

The hotel is nothing special, but don't let this put you off, although basic the room we had was very spacious with a good bathroom, satellite TV and very welcoming air conditioning. Cleaning was also of good quality, only grumble I had with the room (and very minor) was that the hot water took an age to come through.

The breakfast was the normal selection of breads,meats, cheese and fruit with nothing to complain about really other than the fact that the fruit juices weren't fresh but reconstituted from a vending machine and not very pleasant.

There was a friendly bar with a good selection of alcoholic and soft drinks where there was also a good free WiFi service.

The best thing about the hotel was by far the staff who really were extremely friendly and helpful.

All in all for the price this was a good choice of places to stay.

I stayed in the Hotel Londres for one week half-board. It is a very welcoming hotel, with
excellent staff at the reception. Meals were buffet style and while they were good there
was a lack of variety. Breakfast was very good. Bar service tended to be slow at night
because of a lack of staff.The rooms were well kept and linen and towels changed regularly. The hotel has a nice swimming pool which was well used. It is a bit of a climb
up from the beach. Overall the group had a very pleasant stay. The excellent staff make this hotel.

The hotel is comfortable with a helpful staff. Rooms are clean but not so big. My room had a balcony with swimming pool view.
There is Wi-Fi internet in the lobby where you can find also a bar, a barber shop, jewelry shop and rental car. Breakfast is included. Simple but good with variety of breads.
Hotel is located in a strategic place, 5 minutes walking to Casino Estoril, 10 min. by car to the Cascais city center and 30 minutes from Lisbon city center. During the summer, you can also enjoy the beach, 5-10 min walking.

We didn't know what to expect from this hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. We spent a week in Estoril and we found the hotel to be clean and safe. The staff was always helpful and pleasant. The buffet breakfast was OK, but not great. I wouldn't touch the gray sausages and the bacon wasn't what you'd expect in the USA. There was a good variety of breads, fruits and coffee to start off the day. The bar in the lobby was OK too to have a drink in the evening. There isn't a lot on this street except for an Italian restaurant, so you have to go a little farther if you need something else. You can easily walk to the train station (Cascais-Lisboa line), the beach, and other places around the Casino. Overall, it was a great stay. Now for a few negatives. They don't have a parking lot, so the "free parking" that you hear about is on the street. I always found a spot, but it wasn't easy. There are no laundry facilities on-site and the fees to have your clothes cleaned were way too high, so take enough clothes for your entire stay. Other than that, I'd have to recommend this hotel and I'd stay there again.

Hotel Londres is conveniently located in Estoril. Our room was spacious and overlooked a garden. The room was new-ish and modern and more importantly, it was clean. Unfortunately, the bathrooms were not remodeled but the fixtures were in good condition. A good breakfast buffet was included in the booking and was typical of all the hotel breakfasts we had in Portugal --mostly bread, cereal, fruit, yogurt, cold meats and cheeses with maybe one or two hot dishes.

The hotel does not have parking but there is unmetered street parking outside. We found a spot coming back from dinner but it was off-season. I can imagine that it would be difficult to find parking easily during peak-season.

I would rate this hotel between 3 to 3.5 stars. It would have 4 or 5 stars if the bathrooms were remodeled and if the staff was more responsive. I had emailed them prior to booking the rooms to inquire about parking and got no response. The service is fine at the hotel itself. The front desk staff was not the most welcoming compared to other places we stayed at in Portugal but they were professional. I would stay at this hotel again if I was in the area.
